It is also a shining example of what the experience of a successful racing department brings to the table, with Aprilia's having 54 world championships to its name in the course of its relativity short life. Skills honed on the track and transferred to the factory have enabled riders everywhere to experience the incredible excitement and thrill of Aprilia Racing.

The main characteristics of this absolute jewel of Italian technology remain unaltered. Why change a winning recipe? The all-time best superbike retains many of the elements that make it unique, such as its narrow, high performance V4 engine configuration, the first in the world, and the most powerful and advanced ever built by Aprilia. Not only is the RSV4 RR powered by a truly incomparable, lightweight and compact engine, it’s also bristling with a complete suite of electronics to make it safe, fun, and easier to harness, no matter who you are or where you ride.
